Broke @OpenTechCal code into separate libraries; get pull request https://github.com/JMB-Technology-Limited/ICalDissect/pull/1 Didn't even know anyone was using that, cool!

What I worked on at #indiewebcamp for @OpenACalendar ...

1 min read

At IndieWebCamp Edinburgh hack day, I worked on a PHP library I'll use for my community calendar work later.

This takes HTML, and parses it for marked up events in either Schema.org or Microformats markup. It returns a set of objects with the raw data.

This will be used for importing events; people will be able to pass a URL of a page with an event on like this one and we'll be able to import it.

It basically works now but needs more fields added and lots more testing with real world examples. On GitHub here!
